Shoot daily photo challenge :: week 3 roundup

The theme for my week 3 shoot daily photo challenge was Perspective.  I enjoyed looking for different view points, ones that I wouldn’t necessarily see if I weren’t actively seeking it.  My motto for the last few days was look up, look down, look all around.  It got me a little dizzy but was well worth the effort 🙂

15-Jan-2015-National-Gallery-London-stairs-candidsbyjo

After watching Tim’s Vermeer I went to visit London’s National Gallery to have a look at the master’s paintings. I also fell in love with other new favorites such as Van Gogh’s Crab Studies, Pieter de Hooch’s Interior with a Woman Drinking with Two Men and a Maid Servant, Harmen Steenwyck’s Still Life: An Allegory of the Vanities of Human Life and Gerrit Dou’s Poulterer’s Shop. Long story short, I will definitely be returning to the Gallery soon. The shot I chose from my reel that day is of the stairs leading to the Central Hall. I loved the light creeping up the stairs.

16-Jan-15-tate-modern-tuttle-textile-candidsbyjo

The Tate Modern is currently exhibiting a large textile installation from Richard Tuttle. When looking at it head on, from the main viewing area I wasn’t very intrigued but by changing my point of view I found it so much more interesting. I loved the drape of the fabric along with the color palette, so beautifully sensual contrasted with the backdrop of the museum’s industrial looking skylight.

17-Jan-15-green-juice-candidsbyjo

My image for day 17 doesn’t really fall into the theme but I was shooting a lot that day for a recent blog post so gave myself a pass.

18-Jan-15-Kings-cross-candidsbyjo

I’m really lucky in that I don’t have to travel very far to admire amazing architecture in London. My favorite building is the ever so grand St. Pancras Hotel, minutes away from where I live. Its neighbor, King’s Cross Station, doesn’t disappoint either with its interior. The second floor platform offers great views of snakelike curves and a web that spreads upwards.

19-Jan-15-the-imperial-fulham-candidsbyjo

I was lucky enough to be invited to The Imperial, a gastropub in Fulham, for the launch of their new menu by head chef Jason Cole. I’m not exaggerating when I say the 6 course menu we tasted had EVERYTHING I love: roast duck, melt in your mouth pork shoulder, sea bream, makarel, and chocolate mousse. I’ll be posting more photos and a review up on the blog in the next few weeks. The photo I shot for Day 19 is probably my favorite one for week 3 because of its vantage point. Who doesn’t like to take a peek of chefs hard at work?

20-Jan-15-patterns-candidsbyjo

I’ll be the first to admit that Instagram has taught me quite a bit on photography especially when it comes to looking down. I try not to overdo it with the feet shots on my Instagram feed but when there are beautiful patterns or tiles I just can’t help myself.

21-Jan-15-silhouette-candidsbyjo

I had to cheat a little on Day 21 and snap an easy one: a silhouette of naked branches against a grey sky.

I was a lot more motivated on week 3 and hope that it shows in the photos.  We’re headed to Prague this evening for a short trip so hope to catch some architecture shots for week 4!
